Hi everyone, I'm looking for a OS emulator like VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.. to install on Raspbian or other Raspberry Pi OS. I'd like to emulate another ARM OS but I don't know any software to do this. Any idea or suggestion?
If the ARM OS you're trying to run will work under Raspbian's kernel, then you won't need an emulator, but a container.
Instead of allocating a large chunk of RAM and emulating every CPU cycle, a container just runs the programs
of the second OS.
For example, my Pi Power Tools
uses systemd-nspawn to run a second instance of Raspbian in a container. Just give it a raspbian .img file, and push the boot button.
Want to make your own Raspbian image?
- Hard way: Mess with confusing terminal commands.
- Easy way: Let Pi-Power-Tools do it all for you!
your image in a VM
from the Internet at top speed, Mount
(to drop files in), Edit partitions
, and more. Enjoy!
